Lionel Messi casually dropped a '10/10' performance against Ajaccio, his individual highlights are insane

A stunning compilation of Lionel Messi's performance against Ajaccio shows he's well and truly back to his very best.

Messi starred as Paris Saint-Germain easily beat Ajaccio 3-0 to record three league points, maintaining their unbeaten start in Ligue 1.

Kylian Mbappe bagged a brilliant brace, but it was the magical showing of the 35-year-old Argentine that got fans talking on social media.

Messi was simply unplayable and wreaked havoc. He dropped deep and orchestrated PSG's attacks, showing off his sublime vision and distribution.

He threaded incredible passes all night and set up both of Mbappe's goal. The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner pierced a wonderful pass to the French forward for his side's opening goal.

He recorded his second assist of the night when he picked out Mbappe for their third goal.

A compilation of his outing on Friday has been shared online and makes for incredible viewing.

Needless to say, Messi's outing against Ajaccio sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "35-years-old Messi is better than any player who has ever played this sport."

A second tweeted: "How can a player have a 3:30 minutes comp of through balls from 1 game??"

A third added: "Unbelievable control of location and speed of passes. Unmatched in history."

A fourth reacted: "Imagine being the world's best player at 35. Mind-blowing."

Another said: "Casually dropping a 10/10."

Speaking after the result, PSG boss Christophe Galtier praised Messi and called him the 'best player of all time'.

He said: "These are always tricky matches, Ajaccio did well to put us under pressure for 25 minutes. From the moment the pressure went down and we managed to keep possession, we created some interesting chances, like with the first goal. The players put in a good performance on a technical level.

"The pace was less intense in the second half and we were in technical control. We had some key moments and didn’t score, which gave Ajaccio some hope, before our two magnificent goals, including Messi’s.

"People come to the stadium to watch Leo play - he’s the best player of all time. He likes playing with the others, he has this quality of wanting to play with others, he is very altruistic and he was amazing on the second goal."
